2011 is winding down and as expected, my progress apparently headed south for the winter. At best we can say, I’ve been coasting. I’m still down a tad over 100 pounds but with the new year comes a new attitude for me. I’ve seen what eating right, specifically paleo, has done for me and it’s time to take it up a notch. I’ve never bothered with new year’s resolutions because I never was really serious about them. Sure you tell yourself you are going to start using that gym membership but its priority seems to be pretty flexible. And soon enough, we’re considering cancelling that membership all over again.
The thing is, a resolution’s priority should be the last thing that is flexible. In fact, I think it’s supposed to be resolute! On the other hand, your expectations should be flexible. I was listening to a recent episode of Merlin Mann’s Back 2 Work and he does an amazing job of breaking down what we need to do to have successful resolutions. I highly recommend checking it out.
So, it’s time for a fresh start. Incremental changes in my diet, exercise, and activity are on the horizon. Time to take off this last 100 and start living again.
